Please pray for my brother

Hello,
I found out yesterday that my brother Chuck's cancer (he got diagnosed with colon cancer a couple weeks before his 40th birthday) has spread. He now has to undergo months of chemo and radiation  treatment for a 50% chance of surviving. I just ask the blogosphere to send healing thoughts and prayers his way.

Thank you.

Paul

I'm Sad, Eli Stone is cancelled

Why oh why do network honchos cancel awesome shows like Eli Stone? Please give a shout out to Eli in the comments section please if you've seen the show and enjoyed it.

Oh Maggie, I shall miss you.
